This is a continuation of our July, Coweta County History Month activities.
The mission of the Friends of the Brown’s Mill Battlefield is to reveal, through as many voices as possible, the stories of the people and places involved in the Battle of Brown’s Mill, and to revere the memory of all who were touched by the battle.
Our goals focus on preserving and protecting the battlefield, supporting the implementation of park design, archaeological preservation, and land acquisition.
July was a historic month in the year 1864 for Newnan, Coweta County, Georgia. Not only were Newnan's seven hospitals filled with hundreds of Confederate wounded brought in from other battles; on July 30, a cavalry battle was fought 3 miles south of town at Brown's Mill. Both Confederate and Union wounded were brought in to be treated by the doctors and nurses located here. Life was never the same in Newnan after that day.
